Re: 1.5 million to bankrupt

Pissed

Those people in meeting annoyed me tonight.

Pissed that I blew my money on video poker.
Pissed I can't get to damn poker room when I am in a casino.
Pissed I can't trade options anymore since it is considered gambling.

I love poker and trading.
I just got hooked on this ****ing video poker.

I have to reevaluate.
Maybe the Saturday meeting will be better.

I just can't ****ing gamble. Maybe I'll focus my energy on a business plan, my profession, or human relationships.

I don't think I'm going to obsess on attending every meeting.

Some of those people seem sad and weak. Maybe they remind me of myself.

Lonley People

When I walk in a meeting, a casino, or some Christian singles group, that Beatles song is running through my head.

Look at all these lonely people. Where do they all come from.

Seems like life is more pleasant around close friends and family.

Re: 1.5 million to bankrupt

The trick is not judge lonely/sad/depressed and depressing people, but instead try to see something interesting in everyone. And that is not on them, that is on you.

Another trick is not to let judgment that is made about you reach your core.

Go to the meetings and try to find there something interesting/enjoyable for you. Every single person there has an interesting side. Try to connect. I mean it is clear, that if this meetings are torture for you, it is not sustainable.

Have you ever wondered what do I find interesting in your blog?

Because you don't trust them. Were you forced to share? If, yes, then I would so run, but I would try to find a place, where you can share and it feels good.

Yes. I agree. I do try to focus on individuals I connect with. I am such a negative person that I tend to make a generalized judgment of the room. That is on me tho.

For me I believe minimal sharing and more listening is appropriate. Everybody is different. The problem I am having is my shares feel like my gambling. They are very compulsive loud and long. Every meeting I have attended I feel like that was good experience until I opened my mouth.

Re: 1.5 million to bankrupt

I often wish that I would have kept my mouth shut.

I don't know what is the right way to handle that.

I mean apparently there is something that drives you to express yourself this way. So there is something that needs to get out.

But on the other side, if it makes you feel bad afterwards and feels like gambling when you speak.....

May be that is not a bad point to go into yourself and think about what exactly is happening with you, when sharing. May be the lower brain takes over ..... That is usually connected with this compulsive feeling/loss of control and rarely feels good afterwards. May be it actually feels good to let things out, but you are afraid of judgment. May be it is just emotional ... men generally aren't good at being emotional

I really just don't know what is a good strat in that.

Re: 1.5 million to bankrupt

I don't understand the appeal of boneless wings. First off, they aren't even wings. They are like chicken tenders but with a lot of **** on them. Personally, I'd rather have chicken tenders.
